No more homosexual priests? What about pedophiles?

An official of the Catholic Church said yesterday that Pope Benedict XVI soon will sign a document barring homosexuals - even celibate ones - from becoming Roman Catholic priests.

The church official said the ban would pertain only to candidates for the priesthood, not to those already ordained. He also said the document didn't represent a theological shift for the church, which already considers homosexuals "objectively disordered."

Investigators from the Catholic Church will be paying a visit to all 229 seminaries in the U.S., looking for homosexual priests-in-training so they can toss them out on their "objectively disordered" butts.

Whoa there, Pope B, won't this severely curtail the number of candidates for priesthood? Like down to three? And what about the heterosexual priests who are pedophiles? Will they still be allowed to "indoctrinate" church youth?
